Description of the original vehicle: Among the most glamorous Grand Prix events of the 1930s were the contests in the north African City of Tripolis. For the Mercedes-Benz team, this was a good place to be, as they were able to set up one impressive record after another here.

Racing fans all over the world were now looking forward to the debut of the new "mini" Mercedes Silver Arrow W165 at he race track of "Mellaha" on the 7th of May, 1939. Daimler-Benz had built this new 1,5 litre car within 6 months.

A new success story was born when Hermann Lang with starting number 16 and Rudolf Caracciola with starting number 24 drove their racers to a sensational double victory. Hermann Lang was the winner. Rudolf Caracciola with starting number 24 finished 2nd.
